Félix Fénéon at the Quai Branly; a tribute to an open-minded collector
This summer, until September 29th, the Quai Branly Museum pays tribute to the art critic, anarchist and collector, Félix Fénéon. This key late 19th century art world figure was a fervent champion of non-western arts. The current exhibition displays items from Fénéon’s personal collection, including several paintings by his friends Braque, Matisse and Seurat, as well as works of the period from Africa and Oceania.
Prehistory; a Modern Enigma at the Pompidou Centre
Until September 16th, the Georges Pompidou National Centre for Art and Culture offers you the opportunity to go back in time on a chronological journey between prehistory and the modern world of art. More than 300 items such as the prehistoric Madeleine Mammoth and the work of artists such as Dove Allouche, Pierre Huyghe and Paul Cézanne showcase the links spanning the ages from the dawn of civilisation to the modern and contemporary art world.
From the Hittite Empire to the Arameans at the Louvre
Once the rival power to ancient Egypt, the Hittite Empire played a major role in the Middle East until 1200 BC. Archaeological discoveries unearthed in 1912 gave us a new picture of this half-forgotten civilisation and its cultural heritage through a series of large sculptures once used to adorn the palace of the Aramean kings. This exhibition dedicated to the Hittites and Arameans, presented until August 12th, 2019, will amaze you.
Funny Little Animals at the Museum of Decorative Arts
Do you know Mireille the Bee, Camille the Caterpillar or Loulou the Louse? These adorable little creatures born from the imagination of Antoon Krings, author and illustrator of children’s books, take you on a wonderful and humorous journey until September 8th.
